With more than a century of history behind it, Palo Alto has a character all its own with a bustling downtown and a good mix of residential and business zones. The city gets its name from a 1000-year old redwood, which grows to this day next to San Francisquito Creek. Historic buildings and quaint tree-lined make this the quintessential California town.

The residents of Palo Alto are extremely well educated with more than half of all adults holding advanced degrees. The public schools are among the best in the country, which makes sense since the city is home to Stanford University, a leading research facility. Many influential people, including Silicon Valley CEOs, politicians and Nobel prize winners call Stanford their alma mater.

Palo Alto residents enjoy easy access to local businesses and top ranking public schools in addition to a wide range of amenities and recreational opportunities. Joggers and walkers will find ample paths winding throughout the city.

Residents enjoy shopping at outdoor malls and ethnically diverse cuisine in fine dining establishments. Other activities include cultural events, hiking through the baylands or foothills and spending time in the local parks.

Tesla Motors is just one of the high tech companies that maintain headquarters in Palo Alto. Several international law firms have also planted roots in this area. This influx of money has made the city among the most expensive places to live in America.

Palo Alto features the Stanford campus and thirteen distinct neighborhoods with unique characteristics.
